That’s the only way to get it from japan and if you do express mail it’s extra 47 otherwise if you are not in a hurry it takes at least a month to arrive without the extra charge.  I paid extra and my gocco came in 3 days.  I suggest paying the extra $47

I ordered my gocco from northwoodstudios (http://northwoodstudios.tripod.com/).  I got the suggestions from couple brides posting on this board.  I got my machine within a week, even though I haven’t used it yet.  🙂 I dealt directly with Judy and she was very responsive.  I think I paid $15 for shipping…believe she ships out of FL.

Thats what I payed for shipping from Japan.  And actually, even with the $50 shipping it was still less expensive for me to buy my gocco from over seas…

I also got mine from a supplier in Japan http://www.etsy.com look up printaddictjapan. I think you pretty much give and take. You may get the machine cheaper in Japan but you still pay a lot for shipping versus paying more for the machine in the states with less shipping. I think overall etsy was cheaper from my shopping experience.

I actually bought a PG11 from PrintAddict’s Ebay store last night!  With the $47 shipping, it was about $175.  I then spent an extra $45-50 (after shipping) from Northwood Studios for bulbs, masters, ink, etc.  

In contrast, a PG11 with a starter pack from Northwood Studios would have been $250 with shipping.  Made the choice I did in part for the $25 difference, and in part because this way I got the specific inks I need as opposed to the "starter kit" colors.

And, since we’re on the subject, a warning for Ebay purchasers:  PrintAddict seems very safe, given their 100% positive feedback rating.  But this is actually the SECOND Gocco I purchased on Ebay.  The first was from a different seller in Japan.  Never arrived.  Never responded to my emails about tracking/insurance.  And because I was generous with time, it turns out I missed the 60-day window for Ebay disputes….  Which brings me to my Most Important Rules of Major Ebay Purchases — ALWAYS PAY WITH A CREDIT CARD.  In situations like mine, a chargeback may be your only fallback.

I bought mine (a blue pg-5!) from printaddictjapan too. She was really helpful and everything was well packaged. I then bought additional supplies from welshproducts.com. They had the lowest prices and the ladies that worked on my order were awesome!

Now i just need to put the darn thing to use….
